Travel to the enigmatic Mount Athos with this fantastic cruise from Thessaloniki. You will see the impressive Orthodox monasteries from the boat and also enjoy the beautiful beach of Uranopolis.
Monte Athos Cruise
We will pick you up from your hotel in Thessaloniki between 6:45 and 7:30 am and head to the port of Ormos Panagias. After driving for an hour and a half to the northeast of the Sithonia Peninsula, we will arrive at our destination and board a boat where we set sail for Mount Athos.
We will sail along the south of the Athos peninsula, discovering a place full of mysteries and curious laws. Amazingly, only orthodox monks can live on Mount Athos and women are forbidden to enter. You will be surprised by everything that surrounds this monastic peninsula!
From the boat, we will have impressive views of both Mount Athos and the many temples it houses on its slopes. Simono Petras and the monastery of San Gregorio are some of the ones that we will see.
After this tour, we will stop in the town of Uranopolis, where we will enjoy a delicious meal consisting of a Greek salad, a main course, and a tasty dessert. In addition, you can take advantage of the stop to take a refreshing dip in the beach.
We will return to the boat and continue sailing on the Blue Lagoon. In this section of the cruise, we will pass the Vourvourou, Diaporos, and Amouliani islands, where we will make some stops so that you can enjoy another refreshing swim.
Onboard, we will enjoy some traditional music as we sail back to the original starting point at 7:30 pm.
